Forum: etree Subject: New Contribution System Sucks!!!!

I have uploaded 4 shows like I have always done in the past. When importing using the new Contribution System it fails to see that they have been uploaded or bother to transfer them to their new location nor does it make them available even tho it does create an Event page for them. When I check the Contributions Center it shows that they have been imported but does not show that they are in the Cue for derivatives?

That may be the problem...the process has changed. What are the new shows you have uploaded, and where exactly have you uploaded them?

By FTP I upload the properly named folders to the main directory.

miracletrain2006-06-16.sb.nak.matrix.shivaho.flac16
miracletrain2006-06-21.sb.nak.matrix.shivaho.flac16
nbs2006-06-24.sb.shivaho.flac16

Also I uploaded the following show a month ago & it has been imported but the folder is still there.

If you happen to be uploading to a server called like "audio-uploads" or "etree-uploads", then if you "create" an item under the new system, it's like using 2 mismatched elements of 2 separate systems, old and new. There are two different things on this page now:
http://www.archive.org/contribute.php

Toward the top of that page, the NEW SYSTEM: "Create and upload a new movie, audio recording, live concert recording, or book:" Go ahead and follow the specific directions that it will give you, including where to ftp your specific new items. Here is a FAQ that has handy tips:
http://www.archive.org/about/faqs.php#119

Lower on the page, the Obsoleted System "only for copying prior older submissions into new system": If you had some old items lying around that you needed to finish up under the old system, I have little experience with but that there is a link for importing from the now-obsolete audio-uploats server, "Import your prior OLD Live Music".

If you are contributing a new item, do just *start* with the link for the NEW SYSTEM.

Good luck in working out the kinks! It's been a learning process for us all.

From what I can see, you created the directory properly, and then hit "checkin" less than an hour later - in other words, the files never had time to upload to the directory on ia301130.us.archive.org. I see that you've checked the fileset back out - let us know how it goes?

OK thanks..
So if I understand this,
every time I upload now it goes to a different server....
Depending on where it gets assigned when I start the process before I upload.

Bingo - the downside is that you can't bookmark an upload server; it changes every time. The benefit is that the shows go live immediately after you import, rather than waiting for the contribution engine to kick in, move the files, create the derivatives, and THEN have the show go live...assuming there were no errors moving the files to the new server. Streamlines things a bit!

OK It makes sense now....
I think what confused me was the last one I uploaded that went thru was Liquid Dead right about the time the change over occured but still using the old system.

audio-uploads can no longer be used to upload to the LMA. Is that where you sent the files?

Try reading this PDF which shows you how to upload to the new system step-by-step.
